This morning at 9:00 those with a lucky star ticket lined up to get into the fabulous 73rd annual Tony Awards Dress Rehearsals. Host James Corden had us laughing for over 3 hours at Radio City Music Hall.
The Tony Awards will air live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The telecast will also be available to live-stream on CBS All Access.
Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations, Beetlejuice, The Cher Show, Choir Boy, Hadestown, Oklahoma!, The Prom, Tootsie, and Kiss Me, Kate will perform, but don’t count out Be More Chill, because there is a hysterical version with James Corden, Josh Groban, Sara Bareilles and Neil Patrick Harris.
Presenters Laura Benanti, Abigail Breslin, Kristin Chenoweth, Darren Criss, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sutton Foster, Samuel L. Jackson, Shirley Jones, Jane Krakowski, Isabelle Stevenson Award recipient Judith Light, Laura Linney, Lucy Liu, Aasif Mandvi, Audra McDonald, Sienna Miller, Catherine O’Hara, Tony Nominee Kelli O’Hara, Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Anthony Ramos, Andrew Rannells, Michael Shannon, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Marisa Tomei, Samira Wiley, BeBe Winans and Karen Olivo all showed up to rehearsals.
This show really shows off Broadway at it’s best.
Did you know the performers who are nominated do a dress rehearsal at 9:30, which got out at 1:30, then a matinee at 2, then the Tonys! Long Day!
Thank-you to the amazing Pat Addiss
